Just thought I would "moon" y'all ... well, that is, with some
Moon Photos I took.
These were taken Saturday evening, October 27, 2001, around 7:00 pm. I
was trying out my new 8-inch Dob. The view through my new telescope is
"out of this world!" (Think about it ... it really is!)
I used my Canon FTb with a 50mm lens and Polaroid 400 speed film.
Eyepieces were a 25 mm (48x) and a 15mm (82x). Also I did a shot with my
moon filter, which made a pretty "green moon." The camera
settings I used were focus at infinity with a 1/8 second shutter speed.
I hope you like my pics. I think they are pretty good. There are
prints that were made at York Photo, and they are not as good as the
originals, since they look a tad washed out. But they are not bad, with
it being the first time trying out photos with the new scope.
